    1.2 pitched up, straighter and swinging away from Hafeez who throws his hands at the ball but edges it straight to Strauss at first slip, who takes it in front of his nose. A wicket for Lewis in his first over again - great comeback for England 11/1
    10.1 gone! Afridi falls this time as Mahmood pitches it up and he's trapped in front. That's as plumb as you get - absolutely dead. Lewis can breath a sigh of relief...and so can Clarke for that matter 41/3
    3.2 GONE! Terrific delivery from Lewis pitching it right up to Younis; on middle-stump and swinging away, Younis edges it straight to Collingwood at second slip. 17/2
    29.1 GONE! Around the wicket, the arm ball - 79mph - and Yousuf chops it on! Massive wicket, and the end of a turgid 29 from Yousuf 115/4
    30.5 got him! That's the big one, as it were, as Dalrymple angles this into Inzamam's pads who chips it, without timing and in the air, back to the bowler who jumps across to take a very fine catch. What a blow that is 117/6
    29.3 GONE! Malik drives this straight back to Yardy, at comfortable height, who makes no mistake. That was a pretty poor shot 115/5
    not out
    37.6 tries to guide the ball with the spin through to third man, but that's straight to Strauss at first slip for a soft dismissal. Pakistan are really up against it now 138/7
    45.2 and it's up in the air as Shoaib tries to hit this over Broad's head, gets a leading edge down to Joyce at third man who runs in and takes a useful, albeit comfortable catch. Broad has his man. 165/8
